Best and most knowledgeable infectious disease Doctor around. Saved my life. Very compassionate and personable. His humanity is intact despite the obstacles other doctors have fallen to because of the constraints of the current medical model patients and doctors must endure. Five stars are not enough for Dr. Swiggard!!!

I am 70, so have had many different doctors over the years. Dr Swiggard is one of the best. I acquired a MRSA infection in my left hand from a cut I got in Costa Rica. 3 other doctors gave me different ab's, but Dr Swiggard got rid of it. The joint symptoms took a year to go away. After a CAT scan he said spent 45 minutes explaining everything, is extremely intelligent, caring and, well, all doctors could learn from his bedside manner.
